Saturday, November 12th 2016. | Audi

Audi has RS line that can impress people with its practical and powerful design even since the end of 1990. We have been waiting for about 20 years to see a massive change, but it doesn’t happen. A while ago, the all new RS6 was unveiled but the fact is the company left the RS4 behind since all-new A4 had been launched last few months. 2018 Audi RS4 Avant can be the sign that it will come out with minor changes, we bet.

Exterior

We have seen a camouflaged model came out as the test mule. They did the test drive for the car. The best word to describe its new look is the car has subtle design. It doesn’t too much far from the previous model. The new look is still similar. If we see the camouflaged model, it seems that the new 2018 RS4 has wider design than the standard car with the beefier design. Audi, the popular German automaker has a plan to support the new design for this car in order to enhance the performance. They don’t touch the windows and some unique design cues will be added such as the quad-exhaust system and the flared wheel arches.

Interior

The Recaro front and rear seats will be the advantage for those who check the cabin of 2018 Audi RS4. It also will get exclusive RS steering wheel with some extras that you could find on A4 standard such as luxury details. All cabin parts are added to support its performance.

Engine

In order to make it as fast as RS model, the new 2018 Audi RS4 Avant will not use the current V8 engine, but V6 engine with the similar setup to the first RS4. The use of new 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine will be equipped with third electric supercharger to increase its output during acceleration. Automatically, it has larger turbos with no issues at all. Rumors informed that it can generate about 500 hp and more than 450 lb-ft of torque power.
